5/16/2017 DB's Dailies:

At 0639 I found Buster (RV08) snoozin’ at the naupaka at the east end of Sandy Beach. Notified the Hotline.  Mark Sullivan vaccinated Buster at 1135.

At 0830 I found Sadie (RB12)&POI (D#12) at the left end of Rabbit Island. They were on the beach my entire observation period.

On a pan at 0851 RG32 hauled out and moved up to the vegetation, 40 ft right of 3BS on RI. 

At 0909 RM38 hauled out and moved up to join RG32, who also moved down halfway to join him.  They would enter the water together at 0927.

At 1115 RM38 would haul out of Seal Rock Inlet.

When I panned further right at 1134 I found RG32 now atop the water front rocks of Rocky Right Beach.

On a pan at 1232 I panned to the left end on a routine Sadie &PO1 check, and lo and behold they now had new arrival. Sadie gave the stink eye, and when the animal turned to leave, to my surprise there was a remnant transmitter/camera patch. It was Kainoa (RN04).  His last visit home was on 4-22-17. Interestingly that had also been RM38's last trip home. I’m wondering if they didn’t travel from Molokai together on both these occasions?

At 0900 Team Billand reported Ka’ena (RO40) at the 30MIN mark on the west side KP trail.

The next call came at 0905 advising that they’d found Kerby (RW08) at the 30MIN mark.

At 1137 the Billands advised that Kekoa (RK72) was at Guard Rails.

At 1223 Team Billand advised that RN14 & Ka’ale (RH32) were at Kahe Point.
